Own your home buying journey
If you are thinking about buying a home today, you're most likely doing a lot of the searching. Not because your real estate agent isn't helping you but because of online search tools like Zillow that make it really easy to find your home.
It is said that 9/10 home buyers start their search online, and about 6/10 home buyers find the home they ultimately buy through their own search efforts.
So between online, open houses and private tours, you spend a lot of time honing your house hunting skills to find your perfect home.
This begs the question, what is your real estate agent doing for you? - Short answer, the role of the real estate agent has shifted. While you may find the home, your agent can help with the execution, and ultimately give you the guidance you need to buy your home right, negotiate on your behalf with the seller, and coordinate various parties, including seller, lenders, attorneys, and home inspectors to help you close on your home smoothly. More on this down below.
The home buying process I'm talking about is this:
Budget and save for down-payment
Create your needs and wants list
Get a pre-approval
Find your home
Tour a home
Make an offer
Home inspection & diligence
Today, steps 1-5 can be done easily by yourself without an agent. But to make an offer on a home you found, the common practice is to work with your agent (often on their schedule). Your agent will fill out some paperwork and submit the offer to the seller. At this point you are waiting to hear back whether your offer was accepted or not.
The truth is, you don't need an agent to submit an offer.
Make an offer anytime, on your terms
At Nuhom we believe with the right tools and guidance, you should be able to submit an offer on a home you found anytime by yourself. In a competitive home buying market, time is of the essence, and you shouldn't need an agent to submit an offer.
The good news is, you can make an offer on a home anytime using Nuhom's make an offer tool.
Easily enter your offer terms, pricing, and % down payment information, and Nuhom will automatically create an offer, submit it to the seller, and negotiate on your behalf to get it accepted. (Now, making an offer does not mean you bought the home. This is just the first step to show the seller your interest in purchasing the home.)
But, this is just the beginning...
